These People Took The Scariest Bus Ride I Can Imagine … And Now They’re Going To Do It Again

The Undocubus mission is to protest anti-immigrant laws like the one passed in Arizona and to pressure the U.S. government to keep its promise of reforming our immigration policy. So I'd like to ask those commenting on the Internet (not you, of course — just those other kinda mean and sometimes racist commenters) to focus on the message and not how you feel about the messenger. Let's look forward, not back.

The Undocubus rode from Phoenix to Charlotte, where this video was made:

After they completed their first ride, their bus was vandalized. They successfully raised $18,000 in September 2013 to restore it.

Vauhxx Booker, a civil rights activist from Bloomington, Indiana, claims that a group of white men threatened to lynch him during an altercation on July 4 near Lake Monroe, but he was saved by onlookers who intervened.

Video taken during the incident shows he was held down by a group of men who pinned him to a tree in a wooded area. Booker says that while he was being held down, the men threatened to break his arms, repeatedly said "get a noose," and told his friends to leave the area.

The men later let him go after being confronted by onlookers who gathered at the scene.

The incident began, according to Booker, when he and his friends were making their way to the lake to see the lunar eclipse when a white man on an ATV told them they were trespassing. When Booker and his friends continued to walk to the lake, the man on the ATV and his friends allegedly shouted "white power" at them, which is when things turned violent.
